Gentlemen,

 

  I have finalized the next several releases in 32nd scale under the Flying Leathernecks Decal line. If all goes as planned, the first one (FL32003) will go to print toward the middle of this month and the rest will follow in approximately 4 to 6 week intervals afterward.

 

They are as follows:

- F/A-18D VMFA(AW)-533 Operation Deliberate Guard

- F/A-18D VMFA(AW)-533 Operation Iraqi Freedom

- F/A-18D VMFA(AW)-225 Operation Iraqi Freedom

 

FL32005 F/A-18A/B/C/D Full Stencil Data

- Complete stencil data for 2 aircraft..........***This may possibly change to 1 (one) aircraft.

- Will include full airframe, ordnance pylons/launchers, pods, cockpit and landing gear markings.

 

FL32006 'Jumpin Jarheads' AV-8B II Plus, Night Attack Part I

- Final squadrons to be determined end of August

 

FL32007 AV-8B NA/II Plus Full Stencil Data

- Complete stencil data for 2 aircraft

 

FL32008 'Marine Corps Crusaders' F-8C/E (use of Fisher Models conversion required for some options)

- Final squadrons to be determined end of August

 

FL32009 F-8C/D/K/E Full Stencil Data

- Complete stencils for a single Crusader (there are a lot of them)!

 

FL32010 'Semper Skyraiders' Marine Corps AD-4/6 and AD-5 (use of Fisher Models conversion required for some options)

The artwork for sheets 32003 and 32004 are done, I just need to finish the sheet layout. Once that is done, I will post images of the sheets. An announcement will also be made when each sheet is actually emailed to Microscale for printing.

** NOTE - There was a line up change for this sheet. The options below will be done, but on another sheet to be announced later. FL32004 is at print with more colorful F/A-18D options.

Very nice, I have the Academy 1/32 F/A-18C on the workbench right now.  Was planning to finish as a VMFA-251 jet deployed to OIF during June 2003,  but now you have my interest peaked with more choices!

So glad to see you hitting the Marine Corps subjects hard Dave! For some reason I thought you were throwing in the towel, and boy I am glad you are not. Got any pics of that 232 bird? Also there is a 323 bird I have seen in this video at about 1:19 that is about the sweetest Low viz Charlie Hornet paint job I have ever seen. Have you seen any more of her. I can't find stills anywhere. It says 2017

I was at MCAS Miramar in January of this year took walk around photos of that 323 jet. I also took all of the walk arounds of 232 jets with mission markings from OIR.

Hey Dave,

Will sheet 32005 include stencil data for the AN/AAS-38 and AN/ASQ-173 pods?
